More fear than harm
Fortunately, Vianney was able to arrive in Ethiopia safe and sound, in one piece, and have the experience he will remember all his life…
“We were warned that the Afars are quite fierce and internalize their emotions. We were therefore pleasantly surprised because, in an inexplicable and magical way, from the first evening, we talked at random. The women who have an essential role in the village, but with whom we spent less time, also surprised me. They seemed very discreet and withdrawn, but as soon as we spoke with them, they were really happy to tell their life story. had explained in particular the principal concerned to TV Z.
“This trip jostled me a little, in particular, by raising questions like polygamy. Meeting people and different ways of life allows us to better know who we are, where we stand and, above all, to clearly define what we do not want. Although I love and accept without restriction people as they are, some of their traditions run counter to my personal beliefs. But the rule of these exchanges is, above all, to be neither judgmental nor in the desire to change the other while keeping a certain distance vis-à-vis their habits and customs. he added.
